Sam Asghari, the husband of pop superstar Britney Spears, is seeking to divorce the singer he married last year after she was released from a legal conservatorship. In a statement on Instagram, Asghari said he and Spears “have decided to end our journey together”. “We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always,” Asghari added.”Shit happens.”

Representatives for Spears did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Asghari and Spears, 41, wed 14 months ago in June 2022 after dating for nearly six years. The wedding took place months after a judge ended a conservatorship that had controlled the singer’s personal life and finances for 13 years. During court proceedings, Spears said she longed to get married and start a new family without any restrictions.

The conservatorship had been set up and overseen by the singer’s father, Jamie Spears after she had a public breakdown in 2007 and was hospitalized for undisclosed mental health issues. The marriage is the third for Spears, and the first for Asghari. She married Jason Alexander, a childhood friend, in a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas in 2004 but the marriage was annulled shortly after.

According to the dissolution of marriage petition filed by Mr. Asghari in Los Angeles County Superior Court, he asks that spousal support and attorneys’ fees be paid by Ms. Spears.
